In July 2022, I began my new career in the United States with the esteemed International Rescue Committee (IRC) in a short-term employment role that spanned three months. During this time, I had the privilege of connecting with a diverse network of individuals, and each day was immensely enjoyable. Within a few days, I had the pleasure of meeting Ms. Amina, who had recently been promoted to the role of Resettlement Coordinator.
My initial impression of Ms. Amina was that she possessed an incredible work ethic, a positive attitude, and a kind demeanor towards both clients and colleagues. As days turned into weeks, I had the opportunity to work under her supervision. It became apparent that she not only had strong leadership qualities but also a deep passion for fostering a cohesive team.
Towards the end of my initial assignment, another opportunity presented itself, and Ms. Amina encouraged me to take on the role of an R&P Caseworker. I was drawn to this job as it aligned with my desire to help refugees, and I admired Ms. Amina’s strong leadership and dedication to building a robust team.
Starting in this new role brought with it fresh challenges and increased responsibilities. I was fortunate to have Ms. Amina as my supervisor, always ready to answer questions and provide the support needed to deliver high-quality services to our clients. I worked under her supervision for nearly one year and half, during which time I found her to be supportive, courteous, knowledgeable, transparent, and unwavering in her integrity.
On September 15, 2023, an opportunity arose for the position of Resettlement Coordinator. I sought Ms. Amina’s counsel, and she encouraged me to apply, assuring me that I was well-deserving of the opportunity. After a successful interview, I was selected for the role and began my new journey as a Resettlement Coordinator within the IRC on 10/16,2023.
I am pleased to acknowledge Ms. Amina as a valued collaborator in my career at IRC. She is a remarkable team player, characterized by her integrity, punctuality, and the ability to maintain a positive demeanor even during challenging times. Her exemplary leadership skills, proactive nature, charm, organizational abilities, dedication, and competence make her stand out.
